Joan La' Bassiere


Member since


I am a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and member of the BACP (The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). I have been practicing for over fifteen years both in the USA and London and remain committed to providing effective counselling and psychotherapy to all my clients.

I work within the ethical framework of the BACP and am a founding member/director of The London Therapeutic Foundation (LTF).

I have experience working with several presentations such as addictions, domestic violence, trauma, depression, loss, PTSD anger, relational issues, parkinsons and cancer. I work with children, adolescents and families. Part of my experience with trauma, loss and PTSD was gained from providing counselling on site at 9/11 and working with survivors and families afterwards.
